Abstract
The study investigated the role of Employee empowerment on organizational trust and role innovation among 272 employees drawn from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Organization trust was assessed with 32-item scale that addresses five dimensions of trust built from Mishra’s (1996) model for organizational trust, while employee work empowerment was assessed with 12-item empowerment scale developed and validated by Spreitizer (1995). Role innovation was measured with 6-item scale originally developed by west (1987). Results showed that employee work empowerment positively predicted organizational trust (B=.27,P  .01)., while it negatively predicted role innovation (B=-. 15,P  .05). The findings and implications were discussed based on the theoretical and empirical background and in relation to Nigeria socio- economic realities. Limitations of the study were highlighted and suggestions made for further research
